We are a registered charity in the United Kingdom known as (Arab Foundation for Care of Victims of War and Torture).

The mental health needs and care for victims of war and torture is great in some parts of the Arab World following the Arab Spring. The needs can’t possibly be covered by one single organisation and require joint work from variuos factions.
We are a subgroup of the British Arab Psychiatrists Association (BAPA).
We have completed a number of missions visiting Syrian refugee camps in Turkey,Jordan, Lebanon and provided some help in Libya and Gaza.

The aims of this Foundation are:
- To assisst in assessment and treatment of trauma victims of all ages where possible and in esablishing links with local mental health professionals and volunteers.
- To co-ordinate efforts of clinicians and other professionals who are willing to help in providing their expertise and knowledge in caring for trauma affected individuals and victims.
- To facilitate links with other organizations and groups who are willing to support and sponsor volunteers to complete such care projects.
- To help in delivering training courses for clinicians and volunteers in emergency psychiatric support, coping skills and crisis management.
We endeavor to prioritise our efforts to focus on areas most affected by violance and war atrocities.

These efforts,realistically, need support to be maintained in the long term and help other volunteers to join in.

Our charity Foundation allows individuals and organizations to donate money into our account which can help fund future missions to affected areas in the Arab world depending on priorities on the ground.

نحن مؤسسة خيرية مسجلة رسميا ببريطانيا تحت اسم المؤسسة العربية لرعاية ضحايا الحرب والتعذيب. ونحن مجموعة من الأطباء النفسيين العرب الذين يعملون ويعيشون فى بريطانيا و هذه منبثقة عن رابطة الاطباء النفسيين العرب في بريطانيا.نهدف إلى رعاية ضحايا الحروب والنزاعات الدامية فى المنطقة العربية بداية مع التركيز على الرعاية النفسية وضحايا الاضطرابات النفسية ما بعد الصدمة. كما نهدف إلى الأتصال والتعاون مع كل المؤسسات والهيئات والجماعات التى تعمل فى هذا المجال والمجالات المشابهة.

ولا شك أن أي مجموعة منفردة لا تستطيع القيام بهذا الدور وحدها ولذلك فنحن نسعى إلى المشاركة وتسهيل دور الأطباء الذين يرغبون فى القيام بهذا الدور وكذلك المؤسسات التى ترغب فى كفالة ضحايا الحروب و المتطوعون الذين يرغبون فى المشاركة بجهودهم الشخصية لدعم ضحايا الحروب فى المنطقة العربية.
